1st steps with Dad....

An appropriate layout for Fathers day.... 

This is one of the few colour photos I have of me as a baby.
 I was walking - but only just, so to protect my knees I had dungarees over my dress!  My mum only recently told me this tale, I honestly  thought I was simply wearing a huge nappy!!

The patterned papers and stickers are mostly "Everyday Ecclectic" and "Note to Self "by Echo Park.
 I love the retro viewmaster images and the vintage cameras are from some little cards by Sarah Hurley. 
The layout was made a while back for a feature on Dads in the scrapbook Magazine.

.......After a strenuous time at the Park in Rendlesham Forest, that's just what these 2 were doing :)

I've  had this photo in my pile of layouts "to-do" for ages and when I saw the Challenge on Scrapology I thought it was perfect , given the cargo nets reminded me of stitching......The theme for the challenge is H for Hand -stitched.. 

You can see the challenge and inspiration from the DT HERE.

I used a Pink Paisley Kit from Sarah's Cards Ltd, and some of my favourite Doodlebug letter stickers.
I tend to do a fair bit of Faux stitching on my layouts , so it was really nice to make it "real", I have tons of embroidery silks from my cross-stitch days so I have a feeling I'll do a few more now!
